AppUnwrapper’s Favorite iOS Games of 2016

This is only the second year I'm listing my Games of the Year, and 2016 was an incredibly strong one for iOS games. It was hard getting this list down to just ten or fifteen games, so I also have some runners-up. There were just too many great games this year! So, without further ado, I represent my GOTY 2016 list! Any reviews I wrote are linked to the name of each game. Snakebird - If you've been paying close attention this year, you probably aren't too surprised to hear that Noumenon Games' Read more [...]

After the Latest Update, I’ve Nearly Stopped Playing ‘Pokemon Go’ Altogether

Pokémon GO By: Niantic, Inc. (Nintendo) I admit I was already getting bored of Pokemon Go, considering I spent the first few weeks walking around for hours a day, caught over 2000 Pokemon and filled my Pokedex with over 100 different species. New York City, especially Manhattan, is packed with Poke Stops and gyms. So even if I'm still missing 40+ Pokemon from my Pokedex, there's no shortage of common Pokemon. I could probably catch Pidgeys and Rattatas all day long if I want. And that's more Read more [...]

How to Transfer Pokemon in Version 1.1.0 of Pokemon GO

Pokémon GO By: Niantic, Inc. (Nintendo) Niantic released an update to Pokemon Go that changes quite a few things. Most notably, the footprints below each Pokemon in the Nearby Pokemon list are all gone. So instead of fixing the tracking, they got rid of it altogether. They also sent cease-and-desist letters to all the third party tracking sites and apps, like Pokevision. So at least for now, there's no way to track Pokemon anymore. You have to either wander around aimlessly or hang out in Read more [...]

Pokemon GO Walkthrough Guide: Use This IV Calculator To Determine Which Pokemon to Keep and Evolve

Pokémon GO By: Niantic, Inc. (Nintendo) I've played Pokemon Go quite a bit. So much so that I'm burnt out somewhat from catching the same Pokemon over and over and over and have been taking some breaks from it. But I recently came across this great calculator that determines a Pokemon's IV (hidden individual values) and whether it's worth holding onto. It takes the name, HP, CP and current cost of stardust to power up. It uses some formulas I don't really understand. But it helps you narrow Read more [...]

Pokemon GO Walkthrough Guide: Turn Off AR and Practice Throwing Curve Balls

Pokémon GO By: Niantic, Inc. (Nintendo) I've been hanging around Central Park lately with this huge Pokemon Go crowd and there are a couple of things I noticed. 1. I was the only one using AR mode (it's more interesting to me). 2. Everyone around my level spins their balls to make curve balls. So, I decided to see if they're onto something. I turned off AR (Augmented Reality) mode. It takes a bit to get used to the perspective and gauge the distance of the the Pokemon. It's also a lot Read more [...]
